Loboscelidia asiana Kimsey 

Loboscelidia asiana  Kimsey 1988: 68. Holotype male; Viet Nam: Dalat (BPBM).

Material studied.

Only the holotype was seen.


The most distinctive feature of Loboscelidia asiana  is the presence of spatulate or leaf-like setae on the gena, a character shared only with Loboscelidia sisik  (as in fig. 16). However, Loboscelidia asiana  can be distinguished from Loboscelidia sisik  by the submedially curved medial vein (nearly flat in Loboscelidia sisik  ), scape striate and more than 3.5 × as long as broad (smooth and less than 3 × as long as broad in Loboscelidia sisik  ) and no scrobal sulcus (present in Loboscelidia sisik  ).
